Primrose is a huge group of plants with many different colours and styles of flowers. This selection of Japanese Primrose produces candelabra-type or whorls of rose-red blossoms mid to late spring. The foliage forms a low cabbage-like clump of fresh, green leaves. Its native habitat is moist woodlands so it prefers a constantly moist soil, perhaps beside a stream or pond. Beautiful planted in the shady border or woodland garden with other shade-loving favourites like ferns and Hosta. It will adapt, to the semi-shaded border providing the soil is moist. On good sites this may self-seed, eventually forming a large colony. A spectacular sight in late spring. Unique cut flower.
